Emilia's Amazing 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' Makeover
By Antoinette Bueno
Emilia Clarke is currently starring as Holly Golightly in the Broadway production of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's, a role made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film version, and in this video we get to watch how the British beauty made a stunning transformation to get into character.
"I see it as a very feminine period," famed costume director Colleen Atwood says. "Anyone from anywhere can come to New York City and create a persona -- who they want to be -- and there's that freedom there that even in that time that was a little more restricted for women existed. ... Clothes were cut in very kind of interesting ways because people had less fabric to do it. There wasn't a lot of waste and there wasn't sort of the late extravagance that sort of came at the end of the '40s."
Undoubtedly, Clarke certainly looks the part, completely pulling off the chic black ensembles and ruby red lips.
